Why have the alleged ‘news’-reports about Russia’s invasion of Ukraine not been addressing this question?

—————

Investigative historian Eric Zuesse’s next book (soon to be published) will be AMERICA’S EMPIRE OF EVIL: Hitler’s Posthumous Victory, and Why the Social Sciences Need to Change. It’s about how America took over the world after World War II in order to enslave it to U.S.-and-allied billionaires. Their cartels extract the world’s wealth by control of not only their ‘news’ media but the social ‘sciences’ — duping the public.

Because western nations led by the US are seeped in hypocrisy and double standards. No one is being allowed to challenge their narrative openly.

I am an American, and I vehemently condemned the invasion of Iraq in 2001. In fact, I was 18 years old and one week away from starting college when 9/11 happened. I was sleeping on the couch in my parents living room that morning on the west coast, when I opened my eyes to see what looked like a bad movie playing on our TV. We had house guests, you see, and they took my bedroom and I got the couch. So that day, our house guest asked me if I was going to run out and join the military.… Read more »

I want to add to my comment below: The most cynical answer to the question “why Iraq” was proposed by a geography professor in my first year: “This war in Iraq is nothing more than the continuation of Bush Sr’s war of aggression and regime change efforts against Saddam Hussein. The first war ended on a politically salient day: the 100th day. But the war never really ended, as it was carried on with economic sanctions from then on out. This was an excuse to publicly reopen a hot war in Iraq and take the prize originally envisioned by Daddy… Read more »

Yes, and the psychopaths that run the US governments are never held accountable for their war crimes and are a law onto themselves.

You are absolutely right of course. It is the information war and propaganda fed to the sheeple in the west that is allowing these injustices to continue.

As I see it, Iraq’s invasion was all about OIL. Russia’s invasion is about protecting from NATO scheming and lies. The EU gone deaf, dumb and blind.

Because one is part of the evil-doing warmongering psychopathic Globalist agenda and the other is not.

Because Zionist-occupied Jewmurica can attack Muslim countries, but not Zionist-controlled Jewkraine.

Martin, I find your antisemitic comment out of place. Please note that ISRAEL is still on good terms with the Russian Federation and does not condemm Russian special forces in Donbass and Luhansk. Also,Tel Aviv is one of the few airports wordwide where Aeroflog can still land. Also passengers can fly to Moscow from Tel Aviv.

Ukraine is controlled by Nazi faschists, not by Jews. Martin Donohoe does not really know much about Ukraine, obviously his “Jew”glasses are blinding him.

Because the West is totally intoxicated with Americanism…America can do no wrong, no matter how ‘wrong’ this wrong is. What sorry hypocrites.

We may also ask, “Why was the bombing of Serbia by NATO OK” and “Why was the bombing of Libya by NATO OK?”

Nobody in the USA or EU GOVERNMENTS got upset! But now, with Ukraine, we read daily laments about “poor poor Ukraine”.

When will we start to lament about “poor poor Serbia” and “poor poor Libya”?

These laments are long overdue!
